The AEP Climate Change Committee was formed in 2008 to provide information and guidance to AEP members and Lead Agencies on climate change issues and offer comments to state agencies on the implementation of climate change legislation. The AEP Climate Change Committee is pleased to provide the AEP White Paper on Community-wide Greenhouse Gas Baseline Inventories. The purpose of this white paper is to provide recommendations to jurisdictions (cities and counties) on what could be included within a communitywide GHG emissions baseline inventory and methodology for determining the geographic/jurisdictional boundary. This White Paper is not intended to present every acceptable methodology, but rather to lay out a reasonable approach for considering GHG emissions sectors to include in a communitywide baseline emissions inventory.
